ABSTRACT
Research has shown that teachers are strongly influenced in their pedagogical decisions by their own prior educational experiences. This article describes a case study that used Retrospective Miscue Analysis as a research tool to assist one preservice teacher, Sophie, as she reconstructed her perception of the reading process. Sophie came to the research with a strong belief in a text reproduction model of reading. Listening to audio recordings of self-produced miscues became the basis for discussions that centered on the sociopsycholinguistic transactive nature of the reading process. Over the course of the research the preservice teacher examined her assumptions about reading, became acutely aware of and revalued her reading strategies, and came to the realization that efficient effective reading does not result when readers focus on accurate text reproduction reading.
